On Veterans Day, we reflect on the service that more than 21 million men and women have given to our country. About 1.3 million of them served during multiple wars, dating as far back as World War II.

Many veterans now work in a wide range of fields, from manufacturing and retail to transportation and the entertainment industry, as laborers, managers, and executives, according to U.S. Census data. The largest contingent of veterans, about 14 percent, works in public service or administration, which isn’t really surprising given its close relationship to military service.

The U.S. Postal Service has historically been one of the nation’s largest employers of veterans. USPS and OIG employ over 113,000 military members and veterans – almost a quarter of the postal workforce.

As USPS says on its website: “We value the leadership, reliability, and high-tech skills veterans bring to the organization, as well as their loyalty and integrity.”

Please join us in saying to our nation’s veterans, “Thanks for your service.”

    Ah lies. Postal clerk violating this veteran's right to access mail, by phoning police, when I have done nothing wrong. OIG aware and complicit. USPS has no honor delivering the mail, OIG no honor in enforcement of postal programs, or there abuse. By ignoring/abusing law abiding veterans, the USPS and OIG are playing a game of risk. Post Office 98576 abusive of veterans.
